Pulling out its big book of alliteration, Samsung have declared their new D520 phone to be full of “Stylish Simplicity and Stunning Sophistication.”
The slim’n’trim D520 offers tri-band connectivity (GSM 900, 1,800, 1,900 MHz, GPRS) and measures just 101 x 46 x 15.9mm and weighs a lightweight 93g.
The sleek black Samsung sports a ‘slide-up’ design and a simple interface dominated by a 262k, 176 x 220 pixels colour screen.
There’s a 1.3 megapixel camera onboard, Video Recording (MPEG4), a music player capable of playing MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+/WMA files and Bluetooth stereo support.
Storage comes in the shape of 80MB of internal memory with USB connectivity but – strangely – no card expansion slot.
Kitae Lee, President of the Samsung Electronics Telecommunication Network Business, was positively beside himself with joy about the phone, “Samsung mobiles truly understand the wants and needs of our active consumers.
“Samsung is excited to present new slim models to our customers around the world, and we will continue to reveal new models to fit our customers’ needs,” he continued.
The SGH-D520 should be appearing on the shelves around Europe any time now.
